Remembering lives ended by the 2001 terror attacks

NORTH CANAAN — Lives lost because of the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, were honored and remembered in a ceremony in North Canaan in front of St. Joseph Church last Friday. 

A rifle squad from American Legion Post 38 in Torrington fired salutes that morning at 8:46, 9:03, 9:37, 9:59, 10:03 and 10:28 a.m.; the church bells then tolled and bagpiper Lee Collins performed “Amazing Grace” and “Auld Lang Syne.” 

Volunteers read aloud the names of lives lost because of the attacks throughout the day, ending at around midnight.
